side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.
there are going to be folks on both sides. the question is, can you get enough votes? and i think jon is absolutely right. it's critically important that we raise the debt ceiling. i think, however, the president of the united states is not a freshman house republican. >> right. >> and as i said, this deal has been on the table for a long time. this problem has been on the table for a long time. i think we need the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, to step forward and lead here. and i think there will be enough bipartisan support to get a deal done. >> has he not been leading on this? i mean, with regards to his most recent conversations? >> you know, disappointingly president obama put forward a budget in february. this was his opportunity to lead, in my opinion that. budget was voted down 97-0. it tackled entitlement reform not a bit. he gave a wonderful speech in april which the congressional budget office said it couldn't score because there weren't enough specifics. the truth is, the president himself has never put a deal on the table. he's asked other
appearing stronger heading into the 2012 race than he was just a few weeks ago. we want to bring in jon karl to help weigh in on these numbers. jon, we were talking earlier on the surface it seems like a few points shift here. but given the backdrop of this economy and unemployment this is fairly dramatic. >> reporter: is pretty dramatic. and the factor seems to be the debt ceiling standoff. take a look at the numbers against mitt romney, the president has opened up a lead, a pretty significant lead you see there of 51% to 44%. the lead is even more dramatic against other other candidates. look where he was a month ago, david. mitt romney was tied with president obama. the big factor here, in fact, the only factor that has really changed is that independent voters have moved away from the republicans and towards the president. >> so, independent voters watching the debt showdown and weighing in. >> reporter:s that's exactly right. and don't like the way the republicans have been handling it. >> speaking of the republicans, you take a look at how they're stacking up with the race. and a famil
the gullible from their money, jon huntsman, gary johnson, former new mexico governor. fred karger, and gay rights activist, andy martin, a man who proclaims himself to be the king of the birthers, and who am i to question? thaddaeus mccarter, very, very fancy socks in youtube videos. jimmy mcmillan, congressman ron paul, who, of course, needs no introduction. former minnesota governor, tim pawlenty, who would love a introduction, but i'm busy. john romer, former massachusetts' governor and current moneybags, willard, mitt romney, and rick santorum. there are a lot of people who think they should be the republican party's choice to run against president obama next year. who has a real shot at it? you can tell by polling. each poll is expensive. if you are a polling firm, particularly if you are polling nationally, you have got to decide who is viable enough as a candidate to warrant inclusion in your poll, who you think has a real chance. you cannot poll on every one every time, you would go broke. you have to narrow down the field. are you going to poll on jimmy mcmillan? he seems like a v
